Gulf Model School employs 119 full and part-time teachers.
The school follows an Indian Kerala Board and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) curriculum which subsequently lead to their own individual examinations. Only five different nationalities were represented among the student population at the time of its last KHDA inspection - all subcontinent based.
As of 2015-2016 the school received the KHDA inspection rating of Weak - for the fourth year in a row. The school's last full report was published in January 2013, and it has since had three follow up inspections - and thus far failed to put in place improvements requested by the KHDA, Dubai's education regulator.
Those recommendations were to improve teaching and learning so that unsatisfactory lessons could be eliminated; to raise the awareness of all staff members on health and safety issues so that a more proactive approach can be used to eliminate potential hazards; to improve the progress of students with special educational needs by better identification of their needs and improved support; to improve the quality of senior and middle leadership, with a focus on accurate evaluation of the school’s current learning outcomes; to improve governance so that the school meets all statutory requirements, and to eliminate over-crowding in the classrooms and have adequate resources to meet the needs of a larger student body.
In four years the school has not made sufficient headway tackling these issues, to move out of its Weak rating.
Core Subjects include English, Arabic, mathematics, science and Islamic studies (for Muslim students) as set by the Ministry of Education, UAE.
Fees at Gulf Model are very affordable, starting at 3,409 AED and rising to 6,198 AED at Grade 12. Any fee increases will be constrained by its Unsatisfactory rating.
